LAS VEGAS— “It’s lovely,” said Dr. Bette Brickman, a professor of English as a Second Language (ESL), about the Saturday, Feb. 22, afternoon performance of Shen Yun Performing Arts in Reynolds Hall at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
Dr. Brickman, who teaches at the College of Southern Nevada, is a published author and has studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and Harvard University. Each year she compiles and publishes the writings of her ESL students in a project where they explain the proverbs of their native country.
“It’s just beautiful, the dancing, the outfits, the colors, and also the backdrop. It’s just lovely,” she added.
Shen Yun’s website describes the performance: “Sophisticated dance techniques, an orchestra joining instruments from both the East and West, beautiful costumes, and a stunning back drop—this is Shen Yun at first glance. But digging deeper, one discovers a sea of traditional Chinese culture.”
“These people [Shen Yun performers] are very, very talented,” Dr. Brickman said.
Dr. Brickman will “absolutely” recommend her family and friends go to see Shen Yun.
“I would say you need to see this!” she said in closing.
New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts has four touring companies that perform simultaneously around the world. For more information, visit Shen Yun Performing Arts.
